Have you ever wondered what would make the best backpack for survival?
Many other beginning preppers have this very same question, I know because I was one of them.
Unsure as to what pack to use.
That’s why I made this review, to help you in figuring out what the best survival backpack is, at a price you can afford.
I served 4 years in the Marines, so I wanted to find a good pack that was like the assault pack I used when I served.
I have personally bought this pack,
gone through every pocket, examined every zipper, and checked straps.
So, if you’re ready lets jump right in…
As a prepper, it is important to have a tough emergency pack to store all of your essential survival items.
After much research and checking reviews,
I believe I have found one that is durable and also cheap enough to fit within my budget as a working American.
The military tactical assault pack from Reebow has received a ton of good high rated reviews.
It is also well within my budget as most of their packs are below 40 bucks.
This pack has a ton of benefits for you, including:
- Tactical assault backpack: Capacity: 34L. Size approx.:11″*18″*12″ / 28*45.5*30CM (W*H*D), Military backpack is made of high density fabric, durable and water-resistant.
- The assault pack with double-stitched, Heavy duty zippers and utility-style cord pulls, Side and front load compression system, Comfortable padding back area, Ventilated mesh padding shoulder strap.
- Military backpack is hydration compatible that works great for a 2.5L hydration bladder (backpack didn’t include hydration bladder) as hydration backpack or outdoor camping hiking backpack.
- This tactical assault pack can be used as 3 day survival pack, bug out bag, combat backpack, range bag, hunting backpack, rucksack military army backpack or trekking backpack.
- The tactical backpack has MOLLE system, MOLLE is a little different as most tactical backpacks and is not to spec. Spacing between of MOLLE is less than 1/2″
Lets dig a little deeper…
On my first impression when I opened the box was that the bag was a little smaller then I was thinking, still I was only planning to use it for hiking.
The bag uses MOLLE webbing, so you can attach multiple devices on the outside of your pack.
I would probably attach my medical kit along with a fold up shovel on the outside.
You have a fair number of clips to help hold your gear on.
There are straps underneath to hold a poncho or blanket so you can save some room in the actual pack.
On the back side of the pack is a zippered pouch to hold your camelback or other water source.
It also contains a Velcro strip to hold the camelback up so it doesn’t slide down to the bottom.
There seems to be a fair amount of room inside the pack, I tested this out by packing the bag for a 2 day hike and still had a little room left over.
The bag also contains chest and waist straps.
The waist strap is kind of loose and comes apart quite easily.
I plan to take some duct tape and wrap it around where I need the strap to stay at. That way it serves multiple uses as I can also use the duct tape if I need to make any repairs to my gear.
I have a camping trip planned the end of July and this pack will get a ton of use then, so we will see how the pack stands up to wear and tear.
I have used this pack out on my camping trip.
It held up great, had no issues, and stored all my gear for the 4 days we were out there.
I had around 70 pounds in the pack and had no major discomfort, and I have back issues from the military.
This pack would definitely be usable as a 3 day survival pack with no issues.
Don’t like my opinion? Here’s what other people say…
Generally I’ve stuck to brands that cost a bit more but I know are of high quality. I bought these as Christmas presents and I was surprised at the high level quality when they arrived! I’ve literally paid 4-5 times this amount for a good (true) Nylon bag and I’ve had them for years. I expect these bags will also last for years. The quality is actually quite amazing. I ordered two and I would absolutely order some again. -Clem
I bought this to use as a go bag in my POV. I keep a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 folded up inside of it. Along with a couple hundred rounds of ammo for the rifle and my EDC. I keep a med kit in it as well. This is the perfect bag to have on hand just in case SHTF. -Jack Washburn
Was very skeptical at first. I am super picky about my stuff and this backpack surpassed my expectations. It has a lot of useful compartments and plenty of storage. Material is though and latches help keep everything in place. I was able to fit around 60 rds of 7mm ammo, headphones, safety glasses, maintenance items, and everything fit perfectly. –Jesse
These are just some of the reviews I read when deciding to order.
There are a couple bad reviews as well…
Some customers had zippers broke or something wrong with the bag,
but the company was quick to respond and send a new one to the customer.
I did not have any issues when I received my bag, everything was great and it was ready to go!
Some good things about getting this pack…
- 100% free shipping
